      I'd like the tan seats, and I'd like them even more if they were not leather, but for the $3300 price (as shown on the Model S page)? Probably not. Buying the big battery will be bad enough.

        There is no real reason for Tesla to match Model ☰ contemporaries for number of colors/textures for the interior or number of designs for wheels and a bunch of other stuff as options. None of those other cars have 400,000+ reservations. None of them sold even 90,000 units in the U.S. during 2016. Those guys with all their 'luxury' are DOOMED.

        That doesn't mean I wouldn't prefer at least four different colors (WHITE, BLACK, SILVER/GRAY, TAN) in each of three different types of seating (TEXTILE, VEGAN, LEATHER). Along with a variety of carpet colors (BLACK, GRAY, TAN) in the cabin as well as trunk/frunk. I know I'm probably the only one among us that is praying for the return of PIANO BLACK inserts/accents on the interior, because I don't much care for carbon fibre and can do without wood veneer. Not that it much matters, because I know a very capable guy who would gladly do a fully custom interior on the car for me any way I wanted.

        My own preferred configuration would probably be tan textile seats with tan carpet, and piano black inserts... But I could live with silver/gray vegan seats, with black/anthracite carpet, and brushed aluminum inserts if I must. Either way the exterior would be RED. Though I liked all the wheels shown at the unveil, I'd probably try to get the 20" flat disc version shown on the MATTE BLACK car as the 'for show' wheels, and one of the split 'V' five-spoke styles in 18" for daily use.

        I definitely don't want piping on the seats, or contrasting threading on the steering wheel or seats. I'd like to have both a nice set of fuzzy floor matts, as well as some of the WeatherTech variety. Dependent upon how low the car was at regular ride height, I might have to add mud guards at the wheel wells.

        There will hardly ever be anyone in the driver's seat but me, so I don't even care if they are fully manual in adjustment. Set it and forget it. No need for adjustable power memory seating -- unless that comes standard. I would not get that as an option if it could be avoided.

        I'm perfectly OK with some things being separate Accessories instead of Options on the car. I haven't owned a decent bike in ages, so I wouldn't need either the tow hitch or the accessory hitch options.

        I think we will have "packages" and that's how tesla will get below 100 variants...

        Will cost more to get the options you want because of the bundling.

        Awd performance mode and maybe the largest wheels and I'm happy..

        I don't suspect I'll be able to get away without quite a few items which are bundled and it will increase the transaction price quite a bit ..

        I'm looking for the 'P' as well and expect it to come fully loaded which is nice.

        I do worry that the P will be quite a bit more money though and those wanting a fully loaded 75D may not get every option available on the P75D.

        That would suck.

          is there somewhere you can actually configured features/colors online already?

          Not yet -- that will become available starting in July.

          For now, people are using a couple of unofficial Model 3 configurators whose options, colors, etc. are purely based on speculation and the small morsels of "facts" that we've gleaned from official announcements and Elon Musk's Twitter feed.

          Model3Config.com lets you visualize what the Model 3 might look like in various interior/exterior colors and wheel combinations by overlaying colors on top of a picture of one of the Model 3 alpha prototypes. The images in the first post in this thread were created using this website.

          Model3Tracker.info lets you select from a variety of configuration options that are available on the Model S, and provides a rough estimate of what those options might cost on the Model 3. (Note, however, that many of these options may be bundled together, or even not offered at all, when the Model 3 actually goes to production.) The site also has some interesting reports and dashboards about what configuration options are popular and how people are changing their configurations as additional news about the Model 3 comes out.

            No. It would not suck. It would be fair.

            Also, I rather doubt there will be a Model 3 P75D for very long, before it is surpassed.

                  My preferred config:

                  75kWh battery
                  D (awd)
                  Multi-coat Red
                  White interior
                  All glass roof
                  EAP
                  Subzero (winter) pkg, if offered

                  Any guesses if that will be possible for around $50k USD?

                    I think it might be a bit optimistic, but that's the exact package I want (except in white with a tan interior)

                        You have great taste :) White would definitely be my second backup color choice. The white interior of the model S is softer and more durable compared to the leather options, so I'll definitely go for it if offered.

                        I also think $50k is optimistic. I would rarely get the chance to use EAP, so hoping it will be doable without that and I can always add it later.

                        I was thinking 75K was cheap for a loaded Model 3. Apparently you're hoping for less? I certainly hope you're right!

                          99.995%. At least, prior to perhaps mid-2019, when a Tesla Model ☰ P90D might debut. Keep in mind that a fully loaded Tesla Model S is still a bargain compared to a fully loaded Panamera, M7, A8 L, or S63. I expect that a fully loaded Model ☰ will be a bargain compared to a fully loaded M3, C63 S, or Giulia Quadrifoglio.

                          $64,000 ___ BMW M3 Sedan
                          $72,800 ___ Mercedes-AMG C63 S Sedan
                          $72,000 ___ Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Sedan
                          Basically, I figure the car will be around $55,000 or less and that 'all the options' would add at most, another $15,000. So, budget $70,000 plus tax and associated fees. Unless you want a Coupe, then add another $5,000 to $10,000. Or a Convertible, with would be perhaps a $10,000 to $15,000 premium over the Coupe. Neither of those would appear prior to the U.S. Federal EV Tax Credit expiring though, I'm sure.

                            Well, I guess it's a matter of what "loaded" will entail, but yeah, I was kinda hoping for mid-sixties to seventy thou, thinking that doubling the base price would be about right and also thinking like @Red Sage that it really should fall into the baby super sedan market like M3 & C63. If it really is $75K or higher when optioned out then I at least hope we'll be able to drop some of the pricier options. I'd rather have a bare bones P75D than a loaded 75D.
                            But as the Stones so famously said... You Can't Always Get What You Want.
                            And I suppose a 75D is all I really need.

                              Yeah. I'm lucky in that my 'luxury' threshold is pretty low. Power windows & locks, with air conditioning, and a Bluetooth stereo system...? Cool. I'm good. Anything beyond that is pure gravy. Like Supercharger access and a panoramic all-glass roof -- even if it doesn't open! Sure, I'd love to have Autopilot, Dual Motor All Wheel Drive, Smart Air Suspension, and Performance with Ludicrous, but it probably wouldn't be absolutely necessary. I don't need/want leather ANYTHING at all.

                              The one thing I hate about people who's motto is 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' is that what they are really saying most of the time is that 'YOU ain't NEVER Gone Git What YOU Wont!' or, 'You Can't EVER Get What You Want.' They use it as a personal attack on me in particular. As if they believe I don't deserve happiness in any respect. Luckily for me, my natural state is 'happy' -- so I leave those folks alone and I always feel better.

                              Yeah. People say I'm overconfident, full of myself, inconsiderate, arrogant, blah, blah, blah... I don't think so. But then, I'm ME. It isn't arrogance if you can do it. :D
